CONjure is a brand new convention that happened August 01 – 03 this year in Orlando. The idea behind the convention is it could happen anywhere in florida and move if need. The con featured two costume contests with different prizes for the different days, however we only have video from Saturday’s contest.
Here is video from the Anime Festival Orlando performance of Geekapella. They are an amazing troupe of singers who sing pop-culture and nostalgic melodies from anime, video games, and more.

Omni Expo is a wonderful convention which is going to only grow in size. During the first year they fearued a small expo of other conventions and were trying to help advertise other cons while promoting everyone together. To help document this convention we took not only photos but also our own video of the costume contest.
We have a great deal of conventions we’re planning to attend through the end of the year and into next year.

Anime Festival Orlando is a popular convention in Orlando and always features an amazing array of costumes. This years contest featured awards for Novice, Intermediate, and Masterclass. The contest featured great hosts and judges who knew their costumes.
We recently shot with the talented Sohei Cosplay from Orlando Florida. During the shoot Robert photographed three of her amazing costumes, one of which is her never debuted Thor Swimsuit.
Dapper Days hosted their spring Walt Disney World event March 9 at the Magic Kingdom. Dapper days began at Disneyland and is a homage to the days when families would dress up when visiting the park. The event is held twice a year, in the spring and fall, at both resorts. During the event fans are encouraged to come dressed in their best dressed as if they were living anywhere from the 1920’s – 1950s.
The Magic Kingdom event happens in the spring and featured many great actives including an unofficial meet up with everyone Disneybounding for photos. The official events included a ride on the riverboat, exploring tom Sawyer Island, and concluding in the park with a ride on the carousel apply named the Dapper Derby. Other events including mingling at the magic kingdom resorts for drinks. The fall event is scheduled for September 27 and will be held at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

We had a lot of fun at Tampa Anime Day on December 28, 2013. While we got there late we did get some nice photos of the attendees and even found a rare SNES video game in the dealer’s room for only $25. We love these small cons for the atmosphere and even got to meet some great people and make new friends.
Our next con is Evilcon this weekend, If you see us say hey and if you like our photos feel free to tell us!
We’re STILL editing some photos from Holiday Matsuri but felt we should post a little about the convention. The convention was really fun, we did a little of everything but the raves though did spend a lot of time in the peppermint parlor Saturday night. Overall here’s some on the Highlights we enjoyed.
The Runway Contest: Patrons in various holiday inspired costumes walked the cat walk showing off their wonderful creations, congrats to everyone who participated.
Peppermint Parlor: Bunnies, games, and adult shows on stage, yes please. The event was cleaver and really enjoyable. Even got to hang with some of my friends who were working with the event.
Opening Ceremonies: I normally miss this and see closing ceremonies, did it backwards this time but did love how the event is set up.
MLP panel: I’m a brony, nuff said.
The holiday decorations: The hotel had decorated the convention center from top to bottom for Christmas and it provided for some nice photo ops.
Cosplays: ok this is always a given, but everyone loved the holiday inspired cosplays most of the attendees were wearing, even Robert wore a santa hat with his Kaworu cosplay.
We’re hard at work on adding more photos to the edit list since we shot in RAW format for the very first time at this convention. This means the photo look better but can take longer to edit and no mass batching as of yet.
